With every new season of ‘The Great British Baking Show,’ AKA ‘The Great British Bake Off,’ baking fans across the world rejoice in seeing a new set of bakers trying their best to shine bright. Available on Netflix, the British baking series has always allowed its contestants a chance to develop their own fanbase. This includes Dana Conway, seen in the 14th iteration of the show, who, despite a rough start, has been able to garner the attention of the public. Needless to say, everyone is quite curious about what Dana has been up to these days, and we are here to explore the same!
Dana Conway’s The Great British Baking Show Journey
Seen in the fourteenth season of the British show, Dana Conway became a part of the beloved competition at the age of 25 and was eager to prove her worth to the world. As a nod to her Indian heritage, the contestant confessed to often using spices in her dishes in a way that many might consider unconventional. However, under the right circumstances and with enough skill, such habit does have a chance to help the bakers create a dish that one cannot help but salivate over.
However, Dana’s first week on the show was not that easy. Declared as Cake Week, this particular stage of the competition, as expected from the format, had three levels. For her Signature Dish, Dana decided to make a Salted Caramel Latte Vertical Layer Cake, which received mixed reviews. Her position in the Technical round was no better, as she was ranked dead last for her work, making many wonder what the future might have in store for her.
For the Showstopper Challenge, all the participants had to make an Animal Cake, and Dana decided to create a My Amazing Gracie cake, taking inspiration from her adorable cockapoo dog named Gracie. Her love for her beloved pet and her eye for designing helped the baker to pull ahead slightly in the completion. While she was still considered the weakest by one of the judges, Dana did manage to make it to the second week of the competition, determined to come back better and trust her skills.
